Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies

These elegant red velvet shortbread cookies with a drizzle of white chocolate are rich, buttery, and very festive!

Prep Time:

30 min

Cook Time:

15 min

Servings:

1 dozen cookies

Ingredients

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup sugar

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter, cold and cut into cubes

1 tablespoon red food coloring

1/2 cup white chocolate chips or candy melts

Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F. Use butter to grease a 9-inch spring form pan or 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Add flour, sugar, cocoa powder and salt to a food processor. Cover and pulse until combined.

Step 2

Add butter and red food coloring and process until mixture comes together into a ball. It will take about 30-45 seconds.

Step 3

Press mixture into the prepared pan into an even layer. Note: If your pan is not nonstick, line bottom with parchment paper.

Step 4

Bake until center is set, 15-18 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan.

Step 5

Remove sides from pan and use a knife to loosen the cookie from the bottom. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 12 wedges.

Step 6

Melt white chocolate in a heat proof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Remove from heat when a few lumps remain, then stir until smooth.

Step 7

Drizzle white chocolate over the wedges of shortbread. Let sit for 10 minutes until set.

Step 8

Store cookies in an airtight container for a week or more.
